Downtown Holland’s First Spring Fling Event Offers Staycation Fun

Engage with the West Michigan Woman Community!

Downtown Holland to host first-ever spring fling event from April 1 – 5, 2024 filled with shopping, giveaways and more.

Spring break staycationers rejoice! Though you may not be traveling to warmer weather during spring break this year, that doesn't mean there's not still fun to be had here at home. Downtown Holland recently shared plans for their first-ever Spring Fling event, taking place April 1 – 5, 2024. The event is an entire week filled with awesome spring break swag, shopping and dining discounts, fun in-store promotions, and giveaways galore at over 50 participating shops and restaurants.




"We're so excited to host our first ever spring break event in Downtown Holland and to offer families that are staying here in West Michigan for spring break something fun to look forward to," said Kara de Alvare, Downtown Holland Marketing Coordinator. "We have a little something for everyone to enjoy, including an incredible gift card giveaway valued at over $1,000!"




Each day of the Spring Fling event offers a different activity for families to enjoy in Downtown Holland:

Monday, April 1 | Spring Fling Swag
We're kicking off the Spring Fling with a spring break swag giveaway featuring Downtown Holland's brand-new logo! Stop by any participating Spring Fling business to pick up your free reusable shopping tote packed full of fun—while supplies last. Be sure to look for your Spring Fling passport in the tote, too. Get it stamped when you make a purchase at any participating business all week long for a chance to win a gift card giveaway valued at over $1,000.

Tuesday, April 2 and Thursday, April 5 | Shop, Save, & Win!
Show off your Spring Fling swag today and enjoy a 20% discount at participating businesses! (Discount details vary by business.) Be sure to check out the other Spring Fling promotions happening all week long, and of course, don't forget to get your Spring Fling passport stamped with every purchase you make at a participating business.

Wednesday, April 3 | Games & Golf on 8th
Head to Downtown Holland for a full day of outdoor fun! Grab a drink from one of the Downtown Holland Social District establishments (or an ice cream) and try your hand at a variety of family-friendly yard games all along 8th Street, including corn hole, tic-tac-toe, mini golf and more. The best part? No need to worry about sand traps here! Games will be available to play from 10 a.m. – 8 p.m. on Wednesday.

Friday, April 5 | Friday Flights
While your fellow spring breakers are wrestling with long security lines, lost luggage and a lack of leg room as they head back from their spring break destinations, you'll be enjoying a different type of flight! Visit participating bars, restaurants, cafes, ice cream shops, and more to enjoy special Spring Fling Flights on drinks, appetizers, sweet treats and more.

All Week Long | More Spring Fling Fun
There's more Spring Fling fun in-store all week long! In addition to the 20% off discounts on Tuesday and Thursday, participating businesses have lots of fun promotions planned all week long, including additional discounts, complimentary refreshments, giveaways and more.

Completed passports must be turned into the Downtown Holland office inside the Holland Civic Center (150 West 8th Street) by Friday, April 12 for a chance to win.
